Nevada Science Standards
E.12.A.4 Students know that convection and radiation play important roles in moving heat energy in the Earth system. E/S
E.12.A.5 Students know that Earth’s rotation affects winds and ocean currents. I/S
E.12.C.10 Students know Earth's systems have the sun as an external source of energy and the decay of radioactive isotopes and the gravitational energy from the earth’s original formation as two primary internal sources of energy. I/S
Next Generation Science Standards
HS-ESS2-4. Use a model to describe how variations in the flow of energy into and out of Earth’s systems result in changes in climate.
HS-ESS1-1. Develop a model based on evidence to illustrate the life span of the sun and the role of nuclear fusion in the sun’s core to release energy that eventually reaches Earth in the form of radiation.
Coriolis Effect - Weather (winds and ocean currents), not ...... :)
Review the three ways Heat is Transferred:
Read Chapter 24.3 Solar Energy and Winds pg 755-759. Outline the reading in your Science Notebook & include major points and diagrams/tables.
You should focus on the following essential questions:
-What happens to the energy Earth receives from the sun
-How is energy transferred within the troposphere
-What causes winds
-What are some examples of local and global winds
